dee joins to us talk about his new project "beyond trayvon." you're live in the "cnn newsroom." and good morning, thank you so much for being with me. i'm carol costello. we begin this morning with what's being called the deadliest hot air balloon accident in the world in at least 20 years. 14 tourists killed today when a balloon exploded in the southern egyptian city of luxor. it's the site of some of egypt's most famous ruins. these were shot just before the explosion. rez reza sayah joins us this morning. >> reporter: this hot air balloon dropped 1,000 feet, the empire state building is a little more than 1,200 feet so this was a lengthy drop, officials say at least 19 people were killed, this incident happening in the city of luxor in southern egypt, the site of some of the most famous ancient ruins. officials saying 21 people were on board, almost all of them with the exception of the pilot were tourists, among them hong kong nationals, japanese nationals, british, the french. the operator of this hot air balloon was sky cruise. obviously there's going to be a lot of ques
to their $20 billion beer merger. warren buffett announced it's buying food giant heinz. and if u.s. regulators allow it, usair will take over bankrupt american airlines creating the world's biggest airline in the process. that deal is good for investors, but passengers worry airfares will shoot up as competition disapears. but take a look at this. just after airline deregulation came into effect, there were 20 major airlines in the united states. by 1990, there were only 12 major airlines in operation. today just seven and with "uss -- usair and american merging we'll be down six. usair and american don't have a lot of overlapping routes or hubs. in the end, there will only be about out routes out of the 9,000 or so that will be served by one airline. they may see fares go up. but look at this. since 1979, prices for an average domestic economy airfare have dropped from $579 then to $365 now, though they have started to tick up a little bit lately. so much for that myth that merging airlines causes prices to go up. thanks for watching this week. find me on facebook at facebook.com/ali velshi.
